After the August 18 premiere of Being Maci, the MTV spinoff showcasing former Teen Mom star Maci Bookout, the young mom, 21, is now facing some criticism for spanking her 5-year-old son Bentley.
“I’m gonna catch a bunchaaa s–t for spanking bentley . . . #parenting,” the reality star tweeted Sunday night.
During the one-hour special about her life after Teen Mom, Maci was seen struggling to juggle school, work and parenting Bentley with ex-fiancé Ryan Edwards.
During one scene, the reality star and her roommates took Bentley bowling after picking him up from school. But after having a meltdown for having to take turns, Maci excused herself to the bathroom with him and allegedly gave him a spanking that was not shown on camera.
“I got spanked as a kid for being a brat when I knew better,” she tweeted, “so questioning this is questioning my parents and I take offense to that.”
The reality star added: “If Being Maci showed y’all anything it’s that no matter whats happened I’m still just BEING MACI. Nothing will ever change that #beingmaci.”
